Sarabesque
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Sarabesque for solo piano, like the epic Ghost Variations (1991), confirms George Tsontakis’s affinity for the piano. His writing revels in the sound of the instrument. Written for his friend Sarah Rothenberg, a pianist and Artistic Director of Da Camera of Houston, Tsontakis’s Sarabesque moves away from the well-known piano arabesques of Schumann and Debussy. In no way a simply decorative miniature, the piece conjures, in a few short minutes, a sonorous, open musical horizon.
